This retreat provides an opportunity to step aside from the busyness, stress and strains of everyday life and spend time experiencing the rest and peace that Jesus wants you to experience, a time of rest, quiet prayer and reflection.

Mark 6:31-32 Then, because so many people were coming and going that they did not even have a chance to eat, he said to them, “Come with me by yourselves to a quiet place and get some rest”.

Silence is too rare these days, our lives are so often filled with noise. From the moment we get up in the morning to the time we go to bed at night we are constantly bombarded by the media. For so many the solution seems to be to cover the ears with a pair of headphones and shut it out with more noise and many, like Jesus disciples, do not even get a chance to eat.

God loves us and has been with us since the day we were born, but the constant pressures of today’s society often separate us, and as just we miss God in the daily melee could it be that God simply misses hearing from us and being included in our daily lives?

Peter or Fiona will be available for daily individual meetings as a listener and companion to accompany you through the retreat as you slow down and experience a time of listening to God who will be with you in your prayer and daily living.

If you wish to stay longer, or start your stay earlier, please contact us about availability.
